Information & Advice
Bathing your baby is a great opportunity for bonding - and, once you both get used to it, it can also be lots of fun. It's recommended that you fully bathe your baby two to three times a week. On the other days, you should just gently clean their face, neck, hands and bottom - a technique often known as 'topping and tailing'.
Use a shampoo that's specially designed for baby, such as Johnson's Easy-Rinse Foaming Shampoo. It's anti-tears, sensitive on delicate young skin and washes out easily.Shop now
